Watch: Honest Trailer For Roland Emmerich's 'Godzilla' Points Out How It Rips Off 'Jurassic Park'

In 1993 Steven Spielberg made the world squirm with delight with “Jurassic Park,” and five years later, Roland Emmerich made audiences squirm with … something that was not a delight with “Godzilla.” Both featured giant lizards, but only one of them was good, and the latest Honest Trailer take down of the Roland Emmerich joint is on point.

From the bad acting, to the wonky character names, to just the plain shittiness of the movie, this take apart of the movie is pretty good. But we have to admit, even we forgot how plainly the movie rips from “Jurassic Park” without much shame. Okay, maybe with some shame, but it’s pretty flagrant, and clearly with none of the skill or talent of Steven Spielberg. Anyway, you can see it all for yourself below and just be thankful this weekend’s “Godzilla” is better (though that’s a pretty low bar to clear).
